Takreer lets contract for Ruwais refinery

Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Co. (Takreer) has let a service contract to Honeywell’s UOP LLC for a purifying hydrogen system at its 350,000-b/d Ruwais refinery, some 385 miles west of Abu Dhabi City in the United Arab Emirates.

The UOP Polybed PSA system will recover and purify hydrogen for Takreer’s carbon black and delayed coker project to meet the increasing need for clean transportation fuels, according to Honeywell.

In addition to recovering and purifying hydrogen from steam reformers and refinery off-gases, Polybed PSA systems can be used to produce hydrogen from other sources such as ethylene off-gas, methanol off-gas and partial oxidation/synthesis gas, Honeywell said.

Takreer previously announced a $10 billion expansion of the Ruwais refinery that will add 417,000 b/d of crude capacity, taking the plant to more than 800,000 b/d capacity. The company expects start-up in first-half 2014 (OGJ Online, Dec. 2, 2013).
